Hello Internet;

This week I’m at St Thomas University for this year's Drama Fest. This event brings 1300 students from across the province to Fredericton NB. Middle and high school students present their 25-60 minute shows on one of the three stages. These shows are then judged by theatre professionals that grew up in this province.

This year, I’m in the Black Box stage managing the shows. So far, I’ve only seen the middle schools perform, and they have brought a variety. There have been puppet shows, original works and student directed pieces. The sets have blown me away and I’ve seen a whole array of headpieces. It's only day two.
